The way the Lord has sculpted me throughout this journey, and it cannot be undone. I say this because everything I tried to control or fix in my own way, never completely worked out. I refuse to go back to my way of doing things. I have learned to allow the Holy Spirit to rule over my mind and my marriage because He knows the formulas that make the chemistry of our matrimony work...in harmony. From the smallest suggestion, such as “Tell your husband you’re proud of him,” to more serious ones like, “Pray for your husband in this season of temptation.” He knows the how, when, where, why, and to what extent. He (God) needs a strong woman who can stand up when reality comes calling.
Now, I totally and completely trust the Lord with my relationship, and with my husband because everything He has taught me to do, has strengthened, healed, blessed...and spiced up our relationship beyond what I ever thought to be possible! Yes, we already know each other intimately; however, we no longer feel naked and ashamed in each other’s sight. It is my prayer that you will fully accept your assignment as a wife, and learn to love your husband unconditionally, and as a result, reap all the wonderful benefits of marriage that God intended. No matter what stage you are in, in your marriage, you can become the wife God intended you to be!
It would be my honor and pleasure to serve you!
"A Profit to Her Husband" by Dr. Melinda Harper
Often women are heard expressing their desires to be married or to have a husband. Rarely have I heard a woman say that she wants to be a WIFE!
Being married and being a wife are two, completely different things. However, soon after the wedding, we find ourselves lacking the knowledge of what it means to be a wife. We struggle with who we are as married women, as a wife, as a mother and as a daughter.
Society tells us that we should be independent, but how does that work when living out the Word of God as a wife? Without losing ourselves, we are expected to strike the perfect balance. If we are not careful, we can become critical of our husbands and ourselves. It becomes easy to complain and want to give up. We forget what our purpose as a wife.
This book will give you revelation to what it means to be a wife and it will help you strike that balance you are looking for. Being a wife is an assignment that many wives, including myself, were not ready for prior to marriage. Some of us are still learning, and this book will help you and your marriage grow to what God intended it to be. Your marriage will flourish and your husband will profit!
